DEAR LORD!!! could you be any more patronising?

Your presumption that the poster in question only listens to early Beatles is frankly ridiculous. Oh and by the way, "Love Me Do" and "Can't Buy Me Love" are both McCartney songs. I thought you would've known that
You fail to see the point. I'm stating that if one listens to early Beatles (doesn't matter who wrote what, and of course I knew they were McCartney songs) and compare it to U2 songs now, U2 would beat them hands down. The poster in question could not have been comparing post-Rubber Soul material to U2's material of any era and make that ridiculous claim that U2 are more lyrically innovative.

WHY....?

Perhaps you could explain what was so lyrically unique about John Lennon?

U2>The Beatles

Why? Becuase It's my opinion. Therefore it can't be wrong or right. Just like everyone elses. So lets just all get along.

Opinions may not be wrong or right, but they can be boneheaded.

I know this wasn't addressed to me but....


She said I know what it's like to be dead
I know what it is to be sad
And she's making me feel like I've never been born.

I said "Who put all those things in your hair
Things that ake me feel that I'm mad
And you're making me feel like I've never been born."

She said "you don't understand what I said"
I said "No, no, no, you're wrong"
When I was a boy everything was right
Everything was right

I said "Even though you know what you know
I know that I'm ready to leave
'Cause you're making me feel like I've never been born."

She said "you don't understand what I said"
I said "No, no, no, you're wrong"
When I was a boy everything was right
Everything was right

I said "Even though you know what you know
I know that I'm ready to leave
'Cause you're making me feel like I've never been born."

She said I know what it's like to be dead
I know what it is to be sad...

I've had this song in my head all week. Funny that you quote it!

Anyway, it is a question of taste and can't really be solved with debate.

I am content to say that very few would argue that the top two aren't U2 and The Beatles, whatever order you want to put them in.

(But in my opinion U2 is the greatest band ever and their next few albums will be BETTER than what has come before!)

Whoa, check that out, Bono's hairline is receding more than Sir Pauls.

Of course U2 wins the googlefight, Beatle fans are too old to know how to use the internet.

I think you should judge it by getting out all your Beatles music and your U2 music and deciding what you like more overall.

Whilst the Beatles have a lot of good tracks U2 blows them away for pure music IMO.

Up to you if you want to consider all the extra stuff that comes with it tho! I doubt they will in 50 years - because The Beatles will almost be 100 years old, and I doubt our children will be discussing how they pushed the boundaries forward, lol

Indeed, there are many other artists that have albums much better than anything The Beatles put out.

I remember when I first went to hear Sgt Peppers expecting it to be amazing (the first Beatles album I heard) - boy was I dissapointed..

But I got over it...with a little help from my friends..
